HARRIS COUNTY — Investigators with the Precinct 4 Constable’s Emissions Task Force Unit conducted a “curbstoning” investigation in a parking lot located in the 12800 Block of Veterans Memorial.

The investigation revealed a suspect identified as Belzazar Merida was displaying and selling numerous salvage vehicles without a Texas Dealer License.

Merida was issued a citation for engaging in business as a dealer without a license. Investigators also issued numerous notices to curbstone vehicles found along the Veterans Memorial corridor between the Sam Houston Toll road and Cypresswood Drive.

“Curbstoners are unlicensed dealers who typically purchase vehicles that are unsafe or salvaged and resell them to unsuspecting buyers,” said Pct. 4 Constable Mark Herman. “These types of vehicles have not been inspected by a state vehicle inspector and do not meet the state mandated safety or emissions standards.”

Herman urges the citizens of Precinct Four to report “curbstoning” to the Emissions Task Force Unit at (832)927-6150 or online at, http://www.constablepct4.com/emissions-task-force.html.
